It would be nice if the import would support an export on one distribution and an import on another. This would require a mapping of some sort, perhaps via a manifest file. This manifest mapping could be something like using the keys in UFWBackend::files{} and mapping them to the file in the tar archive.

If we are doing all that, it might be easier to just export a json dump where we have a dictionary with the same keys that are in the UFWBackend::files{} dictionary with the values being the file contents. json should work cause these are all flat text files.
